Blue/Orange, Arcola Theatre - © Stephen Cummiskey 2010
Tiata Fahodzi presents a radically new, all-female production of Joe Penhall's award-winning Blue/Orange, ten years on from the play's acclaimed premiere. Blue/Orange is a passionate, witty and ultimately devastating exploration of institutional politics, mental health and race.
A young woman alternately bewilders and beguiles her medical consultants. Faced with stories of a damaged childhood in thrall to Idi Amin and a precarious urban London upbringing, her doctors and the audience must question where the truth lies and to what extent it would be more dangerous to keep her inside than to set her free.
